UK and US carry out air tanking exercise

War Department_RSS

I say, today in a spiffing demonstration of collaboration, the RAF bombed Berlin along with our USAAF bretheren in a joint operation to improve the way we prosecute the war against the Hun.
Umm.. I know the Seps can refuel our lot with a wee modification, but the Timmy's are bit bereft of a boom aren't they?
True enough. but if I remember correctly The US air force has an adapter they can fit to their tactical aircraft so that they can refuel using the more common probe and drouge system used by almost every other airforce, but I don't think they use it very often as their tanker rescources are so large they can get away with it.
Might it help (in so many ways) if aircraft were based much closer to the target... say, on a mobile floating airfield? :)
And let the Navy play in the fast jet game, NEVER!!! RAF, run by fast jet pilots, for fast jet pilots and in order to prevent any capability falling into the hands of another service who might operate it better, cheaper, etc.
